Tom Delay and the Polls

April 4, 2005

A recently released poll of Tom Delays constituents shows that while he still has a favorable rating at home, his unfavorables are growing. But given the media lambasting Delay has been taking this is hardly surprising. What struck me more about the report, in the Houston Chronicle, is its statement that “nearly half of those polled said he intervened (in the Schiavo case) for political gain.”

My question is: when is the last time you can remember any poll anywhere inquiring into whether any Democrat did something for political gain? Just curious.
